Mosquito Repellent Candles


Are you aware that your home likely holds all the ingredients necessary to create your own homemade mosquito-repelling candles? You bet!

Haven't experienced any mosquito problems yet? Well, ensure to bookmark this blog post, dear readers, because it's a real lifesaver.

These DIY mosquito-repelling candles are not only incredibly straightforward to assemble, but the required materials and ingredients are refreshingly basic too.

Here's a step-by-step guide:

Begin by slicing a lemon and a lime (this quantity will suffice for the making of two candles).

Add a few slices of each - the lemon and lime - into a jar. This not only acts as a repellent but gives a lovely citrusy aroma.

Follow this by adding a couple of sprigs of fresh basil. Basil, with its strong scent, is a well-known mosquito deterrent.

Now, fill the jar with water up until it reaches the jar's threading, which is almost to the top as shown.

Next, introduce 10 to 15 drops of lemongrass essential oil into the mix. Its refreshing, citrus-like aroma repels mosquitos efficiently.

Give the contents of your jar a good stir to mix all the ingredients.

Now it's time to place a floating candle on top.

Lastly, ignite the candle and voila! Your homemade mosquito repellent is ready to work its magic!

Enjoy a mosquito-free summer with these delightful candles that add a great ambiance and keep pests at bay. 💜🧡
